"Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut!" is a two-issue Spider-Man story arc written by Roger Stern with art by John Romita, Jr. and published by Marvel Comics. The arc appears in The Amazing Spider-Man #229–230.
Black Tom Cassidy dispatches the Juggernaut to kidnap Madame Web in the hope that her psychic powers would help them defeat the X-Men. She receives a vision of their plan, and calls Peter Parker to ask him to stop the Juggernaut. Spider-Man makes many attempts to stop the Juggernaut, all of which end in failure. When the Juggernaut reaches Madame Web, he separates her from her life-support system, almost killing her. As Madame Web is taken to a hospital, Spider-Man again tries to stop the Juggernaut, luring him to a construction site and finally trapping him in a pool of wet cement. However it is only a matter of time before the Juggernaut will break free.
Something Can Stop the Juggernaut
During The Gauntlet and Grim Hunt storyline in 2010, a sequel to "Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut" called "Something Can Stop the Juggernaut" appears in Amazing Spider-Man #627–629. In this arc, Spider-Man discovers an unconscious Juggernaut, and his subsequent attempt to find out what did this to Juggernaut reveals that he was attacked by the latest incarnation of Captain Universe. The current heir to the Uni-Power is revealed to be William Nguyen, a man whose life was ruined during Spider-Man's battle with the Juggernaut, who believes that it is his duty to destroy the Juggernaut. During the fight, Spider-Man realizes that the Uni-Power's true task for Nguyen is to repair the damage to the tectonic plates under New York that was caused when Juggernaut was digging his way out of concrete, but when he determines to continue attacking the Juggernaut, the Uni-Power transfers from Nguyen to Marko, who repairs the damage but chooses to spare Nguyen on Spider-Man's request. Nguyen goes on to write a book about his experience surviving the Juggernaut.
